Only 11 guards were nominated, but the 1st and 2nd ranks were clear

Compared to 2009, the 2010 rookie draft did not differ much in terms of players. With a few exceptions, few players are properly positioned. Nevertheless, it seems that the draft is not called ‘weak body’ or ‘valley’. This is because Park Chan-hee and Lee Jung-hyun, who were nominated in the 1st and 2nd place, showed a very clear performance.메이저사이트

Although their performance as players does not necessarily proceed in the order of nomination, they clearly proved why they were selected as No. 1 or No. 2 in the draft. The two joined KGC side by side and contributed to the team’s leap forward as a strong team that had not even advanced to the championship match, let alone won the championship before.

Prior to the 2009-10 season, KGC, which traded the team’s starting point guard Joo Hee-jung, began to reorganize and rebuild its strength in earnest. In the process, he sent foreign player Nigel Dixon to Busan KT and received the right to be nominated in the first round of the rookie draft. This is because they and KT were ranked first and second in the 2010 draft. Being the first to be able to write two nominations was a huge benefit.

Guards were the trend in that draft. In particular, the three point guards, Park Chan-hee, Park Chan-sung (Park Yoo-min before renaming), and Park Hyeong-cheol, who were called ‘three nights’, were selected as strong candidates for the lottery pick. In that respect, there were many evaluations that Lee Jung-hyun’s second nomination was unexpected at the time. Each basketball community also responded negatively, saying, “I made a bad 2nd pick,” and even Lee Jung-hyun, the person involved, was surprised at the higher-than-expected ranking. However, through his steady efforts, Lee Jung-hyun grew into the best shooting guard representing Korea.

As can be seen from the fact that 3 nights were expected to be a strong lottery pick candidate, the draft had a strong guard position overall. Out of a total of 21 players selected until the third round, more than half of them were 11 guards. The first to fifth picks in the first round also all came from the guard position. Although guard resources were exceptionally abundant, it is not wrong to say that other positions were relatively weak.

The mixed-race draft is also indispensable. Five mixed-race players, including Jeon Tae-pung, Lee Seung-jun, and Moon Tae-young, were selected the previous year, creating a fresh sensation in the league. Unfortunately, out of seven participants, only one nomination was used. However, the presence of one person chosen like that was too great. It was because it was none other than Moon Tae-jong.

Park Chan-hee, an all-weather guard caught in the 3-point shot Lee Jung-hyun

‘s performance in the 2010-11 season was also brilliant, but Lee had no choice but to stay at number 2 among rookies. It was because there was Park Chan-hee (36‧190.3cm) who showed greater talent than him. As a player who has been receiving attention since his college days, he showed off his unusual talent by flying wildly from his first year as a pro, such as being crowned rookie of the season. Although he is the orthodox No. 1, with a stable reading and fast-breaking ability based on good vision, he also showed the appearance of a slasher who breaks through the opponent’s defense like a gale when he sees a gap.

Above all, Park Chan-hee had his own clear competitiveness. A 190cm tall pure guard is rare in the past and even now. In addition, with his athleticism and vigorous activity, he showed strength in interpersonal defense, so he was used in his team as well as in the national team. He was truly like a total package.

There is a saying that a famous comedian said like a habit in a variety show. ‘I can do everything well except funny’. Park Chan-hee did just that. He was an all-round player, but he was lacking in one of his shooting skills, which held Park Chan-hee’s ankle throughout his career. It can be seen that he was an unfortunate case in which one drawback stood out above all the advantages.

Shooting ability is essential for a point guard. Even if it is not up to the shooter level, it should be enough to succeed with a reasonable probability when an open chance comes. Not just for the team. Only when an open shot goes in, the defense guards itself and other plays, whether it is a breakthrough or a passing game, become smooth. If the shot does not reach a certain level, it becomes easier for the opponent to defend, which can bring down other good things as well. On the other hand, No. 1, who has good shooting power, receives reflective benefits in other areas as well. Shin Ki-seong and Kim Nak-hyun are typical examples.

Even in his rookie days, it was difficult to predict that Park Chan-hee would struggle with outside shots to this extent. He may not be sophisticated, but he was able to succeed to some degree when the chance came to him. In the first season, he threw 133 and made 40 (30.08%), which was evaluated as acceptable. Even if he is not satisfied, it is because he is expected to grow further as he gains experience in the future.

However, his 3-pointer record in his first season was close to his career high. Since then, except for the first season, the 3-point shooting success rate has exceeded 30% only once in the 2018-19 season (32.2%). His success rate is slightly ahead of that time, but the first season is the best in terms of number of successes and attempts. This is the only time the average score has reached double digits.

Was it because he lacked confidence in his 3-point shot? Since his rookie season, Park has never averaged more than three 3-point attempts per game. He was pointed out that ‘he has to throw steadily’, but it would not have been easy to actively throw in a state where he lost a lot of his confidence. There is no “if” in sports, but it is evaluated that if Park Chan-hee had thrown at least as many 3-point shots as during his rookie season, his career would have been very different in many ways.

Lee Jung-hyun (36‧190.3cm) , synonymous with BQ high ‘Geumgang Buddha’ and long run, Lee

Jung-hyun (36‧190.3cm) is from the so-called ‘Ginseng Shingi’ who led the heyday of KGC Ginseng Corporation along with Oh Se-geun, Yang Hee-jong, Park Chan-hee, and Kim Tae-sul. As mentioned earlier, when he was nominated as the second overall pick after Park Chan-hee, there were many opinions that it was an ‘unexpected choice’, but he proved himself that KGC’s choice was correct by doing his part from his rookie days.

As is well known, Lee Jung-hyun’s nickname is ‘Geumgang Buddha’. As can be seen from his record of consecutive business trips, he has a reputation for durability. As the saying goes, ‘not getting sick is also a skill’, even though he has played for a considerable amount of time in every game and has been active for a long time, being able to play without major injuries is the best weapon that makes his value shine.

There are not a few strong and ignorant characters among the Geumgangbulgoe characters in martial arts novels. But Lee Jung-hyun is different. It is true that he has a strong body, but he is somewhat far from the so-called Dolsoe type. ‘As can be seen from the evaluation that his BQ is high, his basketball sense overflowed. Since his rookie days, he wasn’t very fast compared to his position, nor was his athletic ability outstanding. However, he left a name as a shooting guard who dominated the Han era through plays that read the flow and steal the timing.

The part where Lee Jung-hyun first showed his presence at KGC was a confident attack. Unlike most rookies who are intimidated when they come to the pros even if they flutter on the college stage, Lee Jung-hyun was unstoppable in his attacks. Whether he enters or not, he boldly shoots and breaks through, and he is immediately evaluated as ‘the cotyledon that has been called to be.’

Lee Jung-hyun is an all-weather striker. When he gets the slightest gap, he’ll break through and score or get a free throw. His mid-range and bank shots, which seem to go under the goal and then stop momentarily, are excellent. He is good at moving without the ball, so even when he doesn’t have the ball, he constantly moves to find empty space and plays the role of a shooter or fast breaker well.

In addition, he was also evaluated as a very difficult type of player to block from a defensive position because he was good at 2v2 play. In his prime, he wasn’t even bad defensively. Based on his solid physique built through weight training, he was able to overcome physical struggles with players taller than himself, and his ability to hit a pass or intercept a ball with his quick hands was excellent. Indeed, he could be said to be one of the league’s top all-around players in terms of perfection.

As he grew older, what made Lee stand out was his reading and passing abilities. During his days at KCC in Jeonju, when his seasoned beauty was accumulated, this ability was especially brilliant. It is a fact that everyone knows that he is a strong shooting guard who has both inside and outside. When he moves with the ball when attacking, not only the dedicated marksman but also other players often come in to assist defense. In such a situation, rather than overdoing it, Lee Jung-hyun led KCC through so-called basketball together by finding teammates in the space and throwing sharp passes.

When Lee Jung-hyun was holding the ball from the outskirts, it was a headache for his defense. It is because he has a lot of thoughts because he has to keep in mind not only penetration and outside shooting, but also passing. In fact, Lee Jung-Hyun is very good at making comfortable passes to big men by passing the height of the opponent’s defense while sitting on the outskirts.

Because his field of vision is so wide, he stabs a colleague who rushes in accurately with a cut-in pass. If the timing isn’t right or the opponent’s defense notices it, he shoots a 3-point shot or breaks through. It was a special number 2 that performed above average in all the plays that a shooting guard should have.

At the height of his career, Lee Jung-hyun’s reading and passing sense went beyond a simple number 2 and was not envious of a decent point guard. The pass to a teammate after drawing the attention of the defense to himself was very concise and stable. Good passes were continuously entered, taking into account the speed and movement of colleagues who moved up and down, such as bounds and overheads. Given this situation, when Lee Jung-hyun dribbles and uses an eye fake, the opponent has no choice but to react.

Nonetheless, Lee Jung-hyun had quite a few likes and dislikes among fans. It was because of ‘Flopping (cheating motion)’. If you are a professional player, how many players are free in this part? Lee Jung-hyun’s was uniquely noticeable and frequent, so at some point it was called like a pronoun for this kind of play. Of course, only the person himself knew whether he did it intentionally or had a bad habit.

No player is free in front of time. Currently playing for Samsung, Lee Jung-hyun is no longer rated as one of the top two in the league. His unique sense and technique are still the same, but his athletic ability has deteriorated, so he is not afraid of opponents like before. His ups and downs also intensified. Above all, the problem in defense is serious.

This is a part that has been pointed out since the end of the year at KCC. He was not originally a good defensive player or an active player, but due to his age, his activity level and agility decreased, and he was even treated as a hole. In order to fill this gap, it is necessary to have a player who is very strong on defense as a backcourt partner, but this does not seem easy given Samsung’s current member composition. This is why people say that the time has come for him to accept his role as a backup member.

Unlike the previous year, only one naturalized mixed-race player was selected, Moon Tae-jong.

Incheon Etland (now Daegu Korea Gas Corporation), which had to breathe a sigh over the bad luck of the rookie draft every season, smiled broadly for the first time in the 2010 professional basketball naturalized mixed-race player draft. It was because he was able to nominate Moon Tae-jong (US name Jarod Stevenson‧47‧197cm), one of the best mixed race players of all time. After designating Moon Tae-jong, director Yoo Do-hoon, who took a picture with him, had a happy expression on his face.

Moon Tae-young’s older brother, Moon Tae-jong, who had already participated in the draft a season ago and showed outstanding skills as an LG member, was in his late 30s at the time of nomination and was past his prime. However, as he had a career as a high-level foreign player on the European stage, he expected to perform at a high level in the domestic league, and he actually played an ace-level role.

On February 3, 2010, at the Education and Culture Center in Yangjae-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, the same seven people as in the previous year participated in the draft. Compared to the previous draft, in which five players, including Jeon Tae-pung, Lee Seung-jun, Moon Tae-young, Won Ha-joon, and Park Tae-yang, were selected, there was great interest in how many players could be nominated. In addition to Moon Tae-jong, Andrew Estebo, Joseph Fontenot, Anthony Galloway, Ronald Tinsley, Mark Wallington, and Parkwayne Cleveland had completed their draft applications.

It was also a matter of interest whether or not Tony Rutland, who played as a foreign player in SK in the past, joined, but he did not participate in the end. Galloway threw the challenge once again following the previous year, and among the participants, the tallest was Fontenot at 205 cm, and the youngest was Wallington, born in 1989. At that time, five clubs, including Dongbu, Mobis, SK, Orions, and Etland, which did not have naturalized mixed-race players, were eligible to participate.

The reality was sobering. No. 1 E-Land nominated Moon Tae-jong without hesitation, but the problem started next. Orions in 2nd, SK in 3rd, Dongbu in 4th, and Mobis in 5th, sighed when E-Land nominated Moon Tae-jong and did not use the right to nominate a naturalized mixed-race player. Some felt sorry for them, saying, “The rest of the players have become bridesmaids.”

Moon Tae-jong, despite his considerable age, was raging as the best shooter in the league and performed well as a national team member. In particular, at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, he made a revolutionary contribution to winning the gold medal. For this reason, at some point, he was nicknamed ‘King Taejong the Great’. Because he is his age, his athletic ability is outstanding compared to native players, but he did not, but basically his shot was very accurate and in addition to that, his BQ was good, so there were many evaluations that he played easily and smartly.

◆ Moon Tae-jong regular league record ☞ Total average of 11.9 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.9 steals in 452 appearances
⁕ Highest record in one game: Scores ☞ 31 October 2010 against Changwon LG = 37 points / 3-point shot successful ☞ 24 November 2018 against Anyang KGC = 6 / assists ☞ 15 December 2010 against Seoul Samsung = 14 goals / Rebound ☞ 14 October 2012 against Anyang KGC = 14 / Steal ☞ 12/18/2018 against Seoul SK = 4 

Park Chan-hee, Lee Jung-hyeon, and Song Chang-yong are still playing active duty. What stands out here is Song Chang-yong. As can be seen from the fact that he was nominated in the last round of the first round, Song Chang-yong was not a player who received special expectations at the time. However, with his unique sincerity, he appealed for his competitiveness as a backup forward and continues his career to this day. At that time, only three players, including Park Chan-hee, Lee Jung-hyun and Byeon Ki-hoon, had a higher career average score than Song Chang-yong among the players nominated in the first round.

Park Chan-sung is running a skill training company, and Park Hyung-chul is focusing on his studies at a graduate school of a national university in Yokohama, Japan. He has been attending since last fall semester and is designing a new life through political science studies. After retiring, Jaepil Ha joined the Bacchus 3X3 basketball team in March 2019, and since then, he has led the team to the first 3rd place in the playoffs and 3rd place in the regular league, and has been active as a sports instructor and after-school instructor since 2017. are building relationships.

Min Seong-joo is the head of a basketball class, and Lee Min-jae runs a snack bar in Namyangju, Gyeonggi-do. Unfortunately, Ahn Jae-wook was indicted by the prosecution in September 2015 on charges of participating in illegal sports gambling, and has been expelled from the KBL through the Finance Committee.

Moon Tae-jong is living in the United States after retirement, and his second son, Jaryn Stevenson, is recognized as a promising player locally to the extent that he is listed in the top 10 in the U.S. prospect rankings. He is 207 cm tall and is a large wingman resource with excellent athleticism and a 3-point shot. He is planning to challenge the NBA after finishing his freshman year with the possibility of going to the University of North Carolina. Following in his father’s footsteps, he is also likely to play for the South Korean national team. His father, Moon Tae-jong, as well as himself, are accepting this positively.
